Software :: Applescript To Add File Extension .jpg

Aug 16, 2010

I am looking for an Applescript that will add file extensions to a bunch of files. Specifically .jpg to a bunch of pictures. I thought I had it in one of the forums but when you click on the link Attached Files
File Type: zip add to file names.scpt.zip (7.6 KB, 227 views) you get a blank screen and the tab says "attachment.php" and nothing happens. Is there a script somewhere?

Mac Mini :: Open .ods Zip File Which Save As .cpgz File Extension?

Apr 10, 2012

I try to open an Open Office spread sheet and it simply saves the file as another file with the .cpgz extension which does the same thing.  This did not happen a couple weeks ago; I think my download for Apple updates may be the culprit.  My OS X is now 10.7.3, I believe originally it was 10.7.2 but I could be wrong. 

The original document is a zip archive but now "saves as" a .cpgz archive.  I have tried the "Unarchiver", which I just downloaded, but it only creates another file with subfolders, none of which appear to have my original spread sheet.  (To be honest, I never noticed this Open Office spread sheet file was a zip file until a few minutes ago when I tried to unsuccessfully open it).

OS X :: Music Won't Play - No File Extension

Dec 4, 2010

I have close to a hundred music files that won't play, they have no file ending (.*). They were transferred from a now formatted computer (no way to recover). I have no idea how to get them to work. If I give them an AAC ending RealPlayer will give me the following information but it won't play them. Since it tells me the length of the song it must somehow recognize it.

Sample song: [URL]

OS X :: Lost File Extension When Run Images Through Automator

Oct 17, 2008

I have a large collection of files that I'd like to run through Automator to batch edit some qualities of these pictures. However, these images have been submitted from multiple people, moved around, and just "existed" for long enough that some of the files have lost their file extensions. The problem occurs when I try to run them through Automator. Everything runs fine until it comes across a file without an extension, then it stops, and displays an error message. Does anyone know a way around this in Automator? Does an Applescript exist that would be able to add these file extensions back in?

OS X :: Preview Is Unable To Open The File With Extension .dat?

Jul 8, 2010

IWhen I mount and open it, it contains three files: autorun.inf, edisk.dat and SVOLBRO.EXE. I am assuming that it is the edisk.dat file that I should be reading but I can not open it. I have spoken to the company who say that it should contain an encrypted pdf file. I have tried copying and renaming the file to edisk.pdf and then using preview but I am getting an error message saying the preview is unable to open the file.

Applications :: Download Embroidery File While Keeping Extension Intact?

Apr 11, 2009

I have a customer who owns a Mac and when she attempted to download an unzipped embroidery file (jef extension) she was greeted with the message this was not possible, that it had to have a .dmf extension and she was given the option to use both (nameoffile.jef.dmf)This did not work at all.

How do you download an embroidery file while keeping the extension intact?She transfers her file to a jump drive and then to her machine. We tried downloading directly to the jump drive - same message.She is going to try to use her Windows parallel and see if that will work.

Applications :: Opening A Numbers File In Excel Won't Work With Extension Of .xls

May 18, 2010

I have some .numbers files that I need a friend to look at on her pc with Excel 2003 SP3, but it's not working for her. I have changed the extension to .xls but it's no good, as when she tries to open them they are all gobbledegook.

Here's a snapshot of the various files I have, but notice how the icons for each is different, or rather that there are two distinct designs? Some of them DO open in Excel, but some do not.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Text Edit Won't Save With Correct File Extension?

Apr 17, 2012

I am trying to edit Haskell files with Text Edit. However when I save the file it automatically adds .txt or .rtf and won't let me use .txt. Even when I go into finder and change the file extension it immediately changes it back to .rtf or .txt. It works when I save perl files. How do I get Text Edit to save Haskell files? I am using Lion.

OS X Mavericks :: Automator Batch Rename - Removing Type Of File With No Extension

Jun 25, 2014

I've set up an Automator to batch rename files. The renaming works fine. The problem arises when it renames a file which doesn't contain it's extension (a common MacOS practice). Is there some way to make sure it preserves the filetype? For instance, this works fine: 

Original:

Output:

 And this results in an error: 

Original:

Output (file type has been replaced with generic "document" type)

OS X :: Applescript - Having Icon The Causes The Script To Run

Jan 24, 2010

I am relatively new to the whole Apple and iMac community. I am slowly learning though. Any way, my question is: I have a script that causes Safari to open a new window every time I click the icon on the dock instead of opening the Safari window that may already be opened and running in the background. What I cant figure out is how to make my Applescript an application represented by an icon on the dock, and when i click the icon, it just runs with no editor opening or running in the background or ne thing like that. I tried making the script an app by putting a '.app' suffix, but when i tried to run it afterward I got "You cannot open that application NewWindowScript because the Classic environment is no long supported."

OS X :: How To Launch Applescript From Firefox URL Bar

May 31, 2010

I often have a small chat program running, I keep it in the bottom right corner of my screen. It's kind of a stupid application, so it never pops up above active windows for an update, so I keep it uncovered - this means all my windows have to be shrunk to fit, and to not hide it.

Now, because I'm such an OCD person, I like to have a perfect, 1px border between applications, and I like things to be neat and orderly, etc. That means there's a VERY specific place all my firefox windows go. When i open a new one, however, they can be in any shape, size, etc. For a while, I had a bookmarklet with a keyword, I would just type "chatsize" into the URL bar, and the window would automatically position itself correctly. The problem with this is the fact that it, for some reason, would ignore the 4 leftmost pixels of the entire screen, and would not line up with the edge. Moving it 4 pixels isn't such a big deal, but it gets kind of annoying. No matter what I tried javascripting into the URL bar, it never worked.

I came up with a solution: Applescript, I could make the window go to the perfect spot and be the perfect size, but now, I have another problem: I can't launch the applescript from the URL bar. I want to be able to type in "chatsize" to the URL bar, and have it work perfectly, but whenever I change the bookmark to the applescript's location on my hard drive, it attempts to download it. Does anybody have any clue how to launch the application from the URL bar?

OS X :: AppleScript Hanging - Can't Figure Out How To Quit

Jul 23, 2009

I seem to have an AppleScript that is hanging, and I can't figure out how to quit it. I tried the force quit, but it doesn't appear in the list of applications. It was activated when I was compressing a pdf using the print command yesterday. I let it go overnight, but the Applescript icon is still spinning in the uppertoolbar (near my battery indicator etc). If I move my mouse over it I just get a spinning beach ball.Thanks all!
